In an impromptu pre-IDF press briefing today, Intel disclosed a wealth of new information regarding its roadmap product efforts, upcoming multi-core processors and their associated platforms.  The discussion, chaired by the Senior VP of Intel's Digital Enterprise Group, Pat Gelsinger, even covered additional detail of the company's future play in the discrete GPU space, code-named Larrabee.  More details here in our full report.

I wonder how fast would the 8-core or the 6-core processor render in a 3D application. :). It's time for intel to integrade a bit of a graphics power into their CPUs, because rendering times would be much better that way. Just take a look at 3DMark06, when the CPU test is going on and when the graphical tests, you see a big difference.

It really sucks that Dunnington is for servers only

This is exactly the type of article I look forward to reading the most. Intel certainly has some promising technologies waiting to be deployed. With Larrabee on Intel's horizon, companies like AMD-ATI and NVIDIA really need to be on their toes so as not to get capsized by Intel's wake. It looks like the stage is set for serious developments in 3D graphics to finally begin.

 one good thing about intel getting into the graphics could possible be lower prices and newer gpus coming out alot more often

I agree man ^_^...I've been waiting for the IDF for a while...Great to get information before hand =D.

I know Nehalem is going to be a monster, but I'm mostly curious on Larabee more than anything else...I really can't wait till 2009 to see a demonstration of what it's truly capable of =D.

i do not put my hopes up that Larrabee will be better than a ATI/NV solution

They are compeltely different in the way they process...So I'm curious to see the performance. Although Larabee without a doubt will be better for ray tracing..Which I believe the future will be a mixture of Ray tracing and Rasterizing technologies...The future does indeed look bright atm =P.
